21 replies 1856 views Edited Jan 8, 2013

Europe gets Bioshock 2, Batman Arkham City, Mortal Kombat, Resident Evil 5, Bulletstorm, Crysis 2, Vanquish etc

 

America gets Street Fighter IV and some 8 bit Mega Man games...

We just had most of those games.

 

 

  • Bioshock 2 was in December.
  • RE 5 Gold was in November.
  • Bulletstorm is half off right now
  • Crysis 2 was in November (I think)

 

 

We have had some cool games here too. Europe and Japan are different markets and thus are handled differently, with different offerings. Not all games will appeal to everyone. I was somewhat jealous when Europe received Darksiders for free but it's not a big deal.

North American Plus members received BioShock 2 in December and Resident Evil 5 in November. While the other games have yet to come to our Plus store, I'm actually kind of glad. Considering that Batman: Arkham City is a game I've already bought and played through and the others are mostly undesirable rejects, I wouldn't necessarily say that Europe has it better than everyone else.

 

It's all about what you have already played as a Plus member and what you desire most. Personally, I'd rather Plus give out games like Stacking and The Walking Dead once again so that others who haven't already scored these games for free can get a chance to play them now that they're already out. Forget about the likes of Red Dead Redemption, a game many, many, many people have already played... let's get the other three episodes of The Walking Dead so those of us who haven't bought these titles already can finish up the blasted story. :smileywink:

I really wanted Vanquish but was very happy with Bioshock 2 as I had been meaning to play that at some point. I liked the first game better personally.

I would gladly take Arkham City for "free".  All else, eh.  

 

In answer to this ongoing, old question that keeps popping up every once in a while;

 

Why does the Sun rise in the East?

 

Let me know if you figure it out.:smileywink:

oh Man, hundreds are asking the same question and we got sick out of comparing EU+ to US+.

believe me the list of differences is noticeable not only in AAA titles, but also EU+ offers more fresh content in discounts, PSN games and even betas.

Concerning discounts, EU 12 deals of dec was awesome
Concerning PSN games, look at Limo and knyt underground
Concerning betas, we do not have Dust 514 while EU has it

In general to conclude everything for u

1-
Any good content US+ offer, either it is offered before in EU+ (most of the cases) or will have it soon or they have it both together

2-
EU is higher in price and higher in content. US+ is lower in price and lower in content. In US+ u will have some good months and some very bad months (like current one). In EU+ most of the months will be good

3- Sony wants the service to be customized based on the region and that is why US+ provides somehow customized content for USA only In EU+ it covers more than one region and it tends to be more global in content.
